As said above, four of the members casting their votes are running for office. The citizens of Rowlett that are against all apartments are aware of this. They learned early in life that if they don't get their way, they can fall to the floor, cry, yell, whine, until they get their way. Their big brothers and sisters have learned to overturn cars, set them on fire, throw chairs thru storefront windows, and loot stores. Apparently, our legal system says that's okay. Certainly, the right to assemble is fine. I guess that means throwing a fit and being generally disruptive is included.
The only ones unaccounted so far are the ones that read, think, and do nothing. Maybe that someone is you. How about doing something grown up. If you are against all apartments, how about writing City Council and telling them. However, if you have been following this blog, you know all the information is here to help you make intelligent comments regarding apartments. If you are for apartments for seniors and workforce persons, who you see and deal with everyday, write City Council and let them know. Email makes it easy. It's a sophisticated and grown up way of letting City Council know how you think without throwing a temper tantrum.
I have summarized about everything I can think of in a blog post titled, "Open Letter to City Council," and dated July 13, 2017. It's just a couple of posts preceding this one. If you want to email all or part of City Council, you don't have to leave your computer.
Below are the email addresses (live links):
All of City Council:
If you remain quiet, I assume you are okay with all that headed your way, and that's more than the apartment issue. It's the way our city government does business.
